Well that was easy! 10 plays, 80 yards, capped off by a leaping Gio Bernard for a Bengals touchdown, puts the Bengals up early 7-0.
Nice field position for the Bengals first-and-goal at the Packers 3-yard line and the Law Firm helps the Bengals jump out to an early 14-0 lead. The Packers first drive ends on a huge hit from safety George Iloka on Packers receiver Jermichael Finley causing an incompletion at the Cincinnati 20 yard line, Packers punt.
After a Cincy 3-and-out, the Packers got the ball back at their own 43 yard, but only managed a 4-yard gain before stalling on 3rd down after a huge sack by Michael Johnson on Aaron Rodgers forcing a Packers punt.
On the next drive, Giovani Bernard would get a first down on a nice bounce to the outside after being bottled-up in the middle, but disaster struck when, a few plays later, Andy Dalton threw a pick to Sam Shields.
But the defense would hold, and now the Bengals lead is just 14-3.
